The salute to Ski Big Tupper Again! volunteers last Friday has regalvanized efforts to expand operations at the mountain.

Jim LaValley, president of ARISE, announced this week that plans to re-open Chair 3 are in the making.  “I’ve talked to a lot of people and they’re saying to do this, Mr. LaValley told the Free Press on Monday. “The community wants this project development to happen. This is one small way of showing that.”

Mr. LaValley went on to say that while only one trail may be gained by opening Chair 3, its operation would open up almost the entire mountain below.  The owners are supportive and excited about the prospect of expansion.

Along with the expansion of the trail system will come a need for an expansion of the APA permit and increased insurance, not to mention trail work, equipment issues…and more volunteers.

There are no plans to increase ticket prices. Mr. LaValley emphasized that a major thrust of the efforts at the mountain is to get kids skiing and keeping prices the same is a good step in that direction.
